Understanding Aphasia: Top Resources on Speech-Language Disorders
Aphasia is just one of many neurological speech, language and communication disorders that speech-language pathologists may encounter during their careers. Aphasia can be the result of stroke or traumatic head injury, and affects the parts of the brain that are responsible for using and comprehending language. Those suffering from aphasia can have difficulty or even a complete inability to speak or understand words. Fortunately, many people with aphasia can recover some or all of their language capabilities with the help of a speech-language pathologist. These sites provide information for speech-language pathologists and their patients on a wide range of symptoms, causes, and side effects of aphasia and other neurological speech-language disorders. This list isn’t a ranking of these sites, but a broad overview of some of the most reliable online information resources covering speech-language disabilities.
